Default: the Student Loan Documentary chronicles the stories of borrowers from different backgrounds affected by the student lending industry and their struggles to change the system. No matter when their loans were taken, many borrowers find themselves in a paralyzing predicament of repaying two, three or multiple times the original amount borrowed, with no bankruptcy protection, no cap on fees and penalties and no recourse to the law. The consequences are dire, with stories of borrowers in financial and emotional ruin.

Default (27-minute version) was released on PBS in October of 2011, has since gone on to aire on over 142 public broadcasting stations, at over 200 college campuses and mentioned in over 200 media outlets.

The Way of the Warthogs (working title) features the Oakland Warthogs Youth Rugby program, the challenges faced by its student athletes and the impact of rugby in America’s inner cities.  The primary narrative of the documentary will follow the lives of several Warthog players at different stages, explore the challenges and realities of growing up in Oakland, and how the sport of rugby is changing their lives.
